I'm on the lookout for some cheap Dushkas, or as cheap as possible. They seem to be pretty expensive. Maybe I'll just buy a cheap Skif vehicle for its Dushka. Any suggestions?

Look for Friulmodel or TAHK. I've bought Dshks from both companies for between $10-20 on Ebay, at model shows or at online shops.

I'll gladly send you one from the Trumpeter Type 69. I'm sure if you posted on the Buy, Sell, Trade forum you'd get more than you need.

Miniart has a Russian MG set that includes one......Got to be cheaper than buying a Skif kit.

Dragon/DML did a tripod mounted version in the Chinese 'volunteers' figure set, or do you need a vehicle mounted version?

The Tamiya T-62 and T-55 come with them. The T 62 version is overscale and MUCH more crude than the in the more modern released T-55 kit. Some of the Trumpeter PT76's and T 62's have them as well, but not all. These kits come on sale at Squadron fairly regularly.

I would agree, merely asking in the buy sell trade forum will find folks who will send you one for postage, or at least extremely cheap.
